@8: The football coaches are the highest paid employees in about 30 states if I remember the map correctly. So obviously highly paid football coaches don't stop other states from doing a better job funding higher education than we do.

@10 Picked up by the Feds, that is. Don't smoke and kidnap!

I think it's more productive for everyone to take a minute to notice their own racism and the racism around them than the racism in some far away place. This is the United States. There's enough racism around for everyone to take their fair share.

@15, so true. It all makes so much more sense if you substitute the phrase "brown people" whenever one of these blowhards says moochers or takers.

@10, except that they aren't that silly. Somehow they work. As Nate Silver has shown, you can use the data generated by polls to predict elections with a good deal of accuracy. They aren't perfect, of course, but they usually contain useful data.

We should be able to tell if they are getting less useful over time by comparing the results of the election to this year's polls.
Nov 1, 2012 SLCamper commented on New Washington Poll: Inslee Up Narrowly, Marriage Equality Passing, Pot Legalization Passing, Ferguson Ahead in AG's Race.
@6 The difference is that in this case the pollsters are trying to make the poll MORE accurate rather than less accurate like Fox does.

The published both their straight poll results and their modified poll results, so it's not like they are hiding anything.

We'll find out after the election whether they were right or not.

@5 Reading that, it sounds like you are just fine with Romney lying. But that can't be true, because we all know that lying is a bad thing.

I'm still waiting for Gay Dude to say something pro-Romney, rather than something anti-Obama.

@9 When you can't tell the difference between diversity and stupidity, then diversity doesn't have any value.
Oct 21, 2012 SLCamper commented on Three Dead in Wisconsin Day Spa Shooting, Guns Not to Blame.
I'm done being surprised by any of this. The mental illness, the random killings, the calls for different guns laws, the pro-gun lobbying points, all of it.

This is just going to keep happening. We're paralyzed to stop it. Our society isn't ready for any possible actual solution.

My prediction is that this will happen again and again and again and again and it will never stop and we will never figure out any real solution. Heck, we won't even begin to figure a possible solution we're willing to try out.
